As we all know by 2026, every single 7X7 name will be used up. What do y'all think will be the new naming scheme?

Boeing won't build an airliner beyond 797.

The Boeing 8X8 series, perhaps?

I think that's less pessimism, more denial

 

And last time something like this happened, Boeing opted to try 27X7. Sounds a lot less dumb that 8X8 to me.

Well, actually Boeing has an airliner beyond 797 already. It's called the C919. :P

But Chinese aircraft are inferior to Western aircraft. Trust me :(

Probably something along the lines of FVC-O.

 

F = Family

V = Variant in family

C = Variant of variant/Configuration (Ex. ER(1)/LR(2)/F(3)/BCF(4))

O = Operator

 

Example: Boeing B421-H4

 

Family: 4

Variant (Fuselage length): 2

Config: 1 (ER)

Operator: Southwest (H4)

Maybe it will be like cars... we all know a 1990 Taurus and a 2018 Taurus look different but have the same name. Maybe Boeing will decide to continue their current scheme. Maybe Boeing 737-1000 or something.


Current Brands:

Aerostar Airlines

Quantum

Tropical Airlines

That's almost like the McDonnell legacy naming scheme for the Delta series of rockets. Only problem with your thing is that Boeing retired the customer codes on all new deliveries on new models after the 787.

Ah. I wasn't aware of that.
